Drone technology allows for computerized control, eliminating the need for a human presence to apply direct command of the vehicle. Instead, the pilot or driver of a unit can be thousands of miles away, out of harm’s way and in an easy position to pass over control to someone else.
Now, the idea of remote control is being applied in a variety of ways. It’s being dropped into the water. Drone-powered cargo ships are in development, as engineers and politicians look to see if high-tech boats can cut down on pollution and increase efficiency. For the private citizen, there is a drone being developed that can be submerged underwater. It comes with a camera, but the purpose is yet unclear.
The drone is also staying up in the air. A variety of uses are being developed for civilian use. This includes package delivery, beer delivery, whale watching, and general fun. Protestors in the Middle East have used the technology to monitor police activity, and more uncomfortably, municipalities are sure to have done the same to the general population.
“This technology is a cheaper way of taking to the air or taking to the sea,” says Daniel Levine. “There isn’t much training required to use these devices, and it does not require exposure to adverse conditions. It’s an ideal product for the stingy or for the curious.”
